A visa-free itinerary that includes major highlights explored in relaxed manner

If you have 2-days in St. Petersburg and wish to enjoy the highlights of the city without rushing and with more time for pictures and experiencing the feeling of the everyday life, then I would recommend you to book this budget friendly tour. You will visit the top sites such as the Hermitage, Peterhoff with Grand Palace of Peter the Great and Fountain Ensembles of the Lower Park, as well as the most beautiful Churches. You will have more time to walk down the Nevsky prospect -main street of the city, visit the local food market, hunt for authentic souvenirs and enjoy traditional food among citizens of St. Petersburg. No need to wake up at the very early hour to to enjoy 2 days full of history, beauty and flavors of Russian everyday life.
To bring the per person cost, you are welcome to invite your cruise mates along to share the tour! Welcome!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

1 ruble - I would not recommend to take any local cash (rubles) for this tour. The extra money that you will need is to pay for lunches (between 10-30$ per person). Most of places accept credit cards. Souvenir fairs accept cash in dollars and euros, as well as credit cards. In case if it happens that you need some rubles I will be able exchange you rubles for dollars right on the place so that you do not have to lose on the exchange rate.

What’s Extra

Lunches (between 10-30 USD, you can pay via credit card), souvenirs, if desired.
